Only Naomi Campbell really knows why Naomi Campbell decides to chuck cell phones and get in fights with airline staffers, but now the catwalk queen is trying to set the record straight about her run-ins with the law.

"If someone calls me a racial slur, I find it very offensive," she tells Extra of the incident with a flight attendant on a recent London flight that led to her angrily confronting police offers at Heathrow.

"After paying all that money and you’re trying to get to a funeral, which is where I was trying to get to, I thought, ‘Well, I think I have the right to be upset right now.' "

Although reports claim that Campbell has had a rough year – she was charged with assaulting Heathrow airport police, banned from British Airways and given 200 hours of community service – Naomi says everything is going well for her.

“I had a great year. I couldn’t be happier,” she tells Extra's Terri Seymour. “I don’t buy newspapers. I don’t listen to it. I don’t pay attention. I just go on with my life.”

Going on with her life may include starting a family, as Naomi reveals that although she thought she might not be able to have children, that's not the case.

“Because I had an operation this year where I didn’t know I had a complication. I went in for something else and I discovered my tubes were blocked and they unblocked them and I realized now I can have kids. I had no idea they were blocked in the first place," she confesses.
